Wrestle For A Reason:


Wrestling is more than just a sport, it is what defines you.  You are a wrestler, and wrestling is a mindset. Either you have it or you don't.  There is no middle ground, no partial investments, and no being a “kinda” wrestler.  You have to be all in, 100% vested, and a different kind of kid!  Wrestling allows you complete control to write your own narrative.  Wrestle as if your life depends on it. That somehow, through the cutting weight, relentless hours of training, painful defeats and thrilling victories, sacrificed holidays and weekends, that somehow wrestling is more than just a sport.  It is wrestling that defines your character, integrity, discipline, work ethic, and your relentless pursuit to be the best, both on and off the mat.  Wrestle not for victories, but to understand just how far you can push yourself.  For it is wrestling that taught you how to set goals and work towards achieving them, and that “limitless” is more than just a word, but now your personal battle cry!!!  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against the powers of this world, and things we must overcome in our minds.  Wrestle because there is no room to be the victim.  Make no excuses.  Create your own destiny.  Wrestle to turn you're good into great.  Wrestle as if no one is watching.  Wrestle with such intensity and passion that others resolve to the fact that they truly could not do what you do.  Wrestle knowing that you are part of a very select, but very powerful community.  Wrestle for a reason; a reason that is good, but a reason that keeps you up at night with wild anticipation and hunger to get after it again tomorrow. Wrestle to prepare your body, heart and soul to be a champion for life!


About Us

C2X Wrestling Academy will be a place where character is fostered, hard work is demanded, and glory is fought for every day!!!!


​C2X is a wrestling academy for students of all ages and experience. C2X coaches are committed to teaching our students wrestling fundamentals through proper technique, all aspects of conditioning, and a commitment to excellence in their training, their school work, their relationships, and the way they carry themselves on and off the mat! C2X will allow for year round wrestling and help our student athletes prepare for middle school, high school, and college wrestling. Our students will be the best conditioned athletes for any sport they participate in. Our students will gain valuable match experience in the room, and through tournaments hosted by C2X. We will look to build a C2X “Showcase” wrestling team to take on the road to top tournaments. The best way to develop as a future champion is to gain valuable match experience, train and drill properly, and wrestle top notch competition on a daily basis.


C2X curriculum will be high energy, but tailored to the individual needs of the particular athlete.  Sessions will consist of precise technique, drilling with a purpose, conditioning, and live wrestling.  Some sessions will consist of working on our feet, drilling a variety of take downs with proper set ups and shots, head position, proper riding, pinning combinations, set ups, hand control, and improving our students wrestling IQ’s.



The cornerstone of your club will undoubtedly be the coaching staff. The right coaches will not only help build your wrestlers’ technical skills, but also their character.
